Double sided tape in strips from a roll or in sheets can be used in many, many crafts.
Neater Than Glue
Envelopes And Boxes
Clear Tape Can Be Very Useful
If you make your own envelopes or boxes, 1/4″ wide double-sided tape is a great way to put them together and to seal them. It’s plenty strong enough for normal mail handling.
1/4″ wide double-sided tape is great for sealing handmade or any other envelopes that come without a glue strip.
Since the tape is clear it’s a perfect choice for sealing clear plastic envelopes.
Remove backing film from one side of double-sided tape sheet. Cover the back of an image with it. Cut the tape sheet to conform to the shape of the image. Leave backing film on. Turn image over and repeat on the front. Remove the backing film. Cover entire front with clear micro-beads. It makes the image look frosted.
